"In recent work, I have been continuing to develop my technique of super-saturating the paper and applying multiple washes of color (usually 15-20) to create depth of light and color in the background. I am also experimenting with different ways to apply and then remove watercolor to create the subject matter. The inkwork, too, is being developed-- I recently discovered 'Rotring,' a new pen system from Germany-- by far the best ink pen I have ever used. These techniques and improved tools really help to keep the artistry and excitement alive, and keep me motivated to continue exploring our landscape."
